What are you trying to do exactly?
There are a lot of people who abuse the HOSTS file and try to make it into something that it's not, so getting an idea of what you're trying to do first would be helpful in figuring out if someone is leading you down a blind alley.
Hello! Just yesterday, I was trying a Horizon 360 Bypass hack but one of the instructions says:
Ok, first got into:
Open a file named "hosts" with NotePad.
"# 126.96.36.199 horizon360.net
Then when I add the data # 69.162. stuff into the Hosts file, the Horizon doesn't show up as VIP even though it's supposed to! Could someone help or make the correct Hosts file??
